All Saints – One Strike [Official Music Video]

All Saints have premiered the official music video for their first single in a decade, One Strike

Taken from Shaznay, Mel, Nicole and Natalie’s upcoming fourth studio album Red Flag, the follow up to their underrated 2006 set Studio One, the pop number – reportedly written about Nic’s break up with Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher – focuses very much on honing in on their blissful harmonies and, subtly reinforcing their understated message of girl power. 

“It’s about conversations I was having with Nic at the time when she was going through personal things in her life, and as a friend I was just inspired to write about it, Shaznay has said. “The phrase ‘one strike’ is about how your life can just change in one instant. You can be walking down the road, you’ve just left your family at home and everything’s hunky dory, then when you go back home they’re gone. On one side of the door your life’s amazing, on the other side it changes just like that.”

What’s more, One Strike feels like a natural extension of their superb William Orbit -produced turn-of-the-century hits Pure Shores and Black Coffee with a nod to Shaznay’s own 2004 solo treat Never Felt Like This Before.

The new album, out 8 April, also sees All Saints reuniting with K-Gee who has co-produced each of the band’s previous releases, and teaming up with The Invisible Men, Janes Draper and Hutch.
